The plus points - close to the station.
The bad points - Room was dirty, food debris under the bed -it was a pine framed one and I had the unfortunate chance to find the food when something dropped on the floor. More food under the dressing table, which you could see from the bathroom. Some ones else's hairs in the bath. The shower curtain is 2 inches too short so water pours onto the floor- despite the sign saying to put shower curtain inside the bath before using! Easily fixed if they bothered to lower the curtain rail. This was the same for all rooms.
Lack of plug sockets, and they were all painted the same colour as the furniture so v hard to find!
I badgered reception to give me a fan, which they did, otherwise it would have been impossible to sleep as the window didn't open properly.
The shower was freezing cold - which was fine as my room was as hot as a furnace, but the cold basin tap was warm?!
Coffee sachets are the nastiest, cheapest they could find.
There were 2 lifts, however only one worked at breakfast time, and never came to the 6th floor, so I had to walk down 6 flights to even get to reception and then another 2 to actually get down to the breakfast room- which was packed. Food ran out all the time, you queued like you did at school and if you wanted tea you had to wait until the one waitress brought it round. Each table had a massive flask on it, presumably with coffee in it. The room was also very very hot.
I spoke to two people in the lift who said they had been given a smoking room - I didn't even realise they were still legal!! When they asked to be moved, they were given a windowless room which made them feel like they were in prison.
In the room was a 2 wave radio (see picture). Naturally it didn't work either and was straight out of the 1960's.
The TV was a square beko portable. I only found 3 channels. Two of which were snowy and the third wavy, so gave up.
Would I stay again? NO
Would recommend? NO
Lots of old people staying, with mobility problems, but there are so many stairs they were struggling. There is a wheelchair lift from the main seating area to the restaurant, but then there are 2 flights down (without a lift) to actually get to the food!
